New Zealand has a somewhat green image, one that is probably not earned so much as it is historically remembered.

Our national clean, fresh water supplies should be protected from any outside or international interests completely.

The world is in a water crisis. New Zealand is systematically poisoning its water with fluoride and ignoring recent research that proves it is not safe. 

I am an average Kiwi and I think we should, as a country, fiercely protect our natural resources, all of them.

I do not support the sale or use of our natural water resources.

The only reason foreign investors want our water is because they lack it in their own country, or they want to exploit it for personal gain.

New Zealand needs to get a clue and realise what is important.
